Lucien Piccard - I LOVE YOU - 14kt. Gold Bracelet - Vintage 1960's.
In 1970 I acquired two unique Lucien Piccard Bracelets from a New York City jeweler. Both having the famous Lucien Piccard design and construction of 3 rows with 2 cultured pearls in each row. One bracelet was sold on Ruby Lane several years ago which had similar individual plaques of amethyst color set in a 14Kt. gold frame with rows of cultured pearls in between. That bracelet was marked on the back of the identical tongue clasp Lucien Piccard - 14K. The difference with this bracelet is the need for 8 plaques, one for each letter spelling I LOVE YOU, the signature Lucien Piccard box clasp could not be used.
It is authentic Lucien Piccard, although unsigned on the back. Lucien Piccard is most famous as a watch company established in Switzerland in the 1920's. They often use these same 4mm cultured pearls in their fine gold watch bracelets too.
Set inside each plaque are invisibly set rows of sapphire blue crystals encased between a top 14Kt. gold Florentine finish layer and a bottom textured polished layer of 14Kt. gold. Each plaque measures 16 x 14mm. The entire gram weight of the bracelet is 33.6. The length 7-1/4" x 5/8" wide. There are a total of 48 cultured pearls with a fine luster. The bracelet is comfortable to wear and flexible, not a bangle.
This beautiful and most unusual vintage bracelet, with its romantic expression of love would make a wonderful gift for any occasion - anniversary, birthday or holiday and comes inside the black velvet bracelet box shown.
